The Gathering G2
G2 was the last ever Gathering, and was the second to be held in the Cobb Valley in Golden Bay.
This section is a little lacking in content at the moment. This is because we don't have much in the way of archives we can draw upon. Can you help? How to send us missing items from this section.
In this section:
How many portaloos? How many Gatherers? And how many incredible DJs, live acts, VJs and performers did their thing in Cobb Valley?
Media coverage before G2 was strangely muted, with only a few relatively small articles, despite John Digweed being booked to play.
Post-party coverage was mostly enthusiastic, although the drug-testing taking place onsite (not sanctioned by TheG) and the relatively low turnout did make for a few inches of additional copy. As in 2001 Murray once again threatened to take the party north, and again the media mentioned the growing competition amongst dance parties for the New Year crowds.
And then in May came reports that The Gathering's finances had not recovered from the losses of G1, and were in fact, worse. The dreaded word "receivership" was mentioned and then - just like that, it was all over. The Gathering company was placed into liquidation, and that was the end of the party. Goodbye to The Gathering, and goodbye to the magic... How sad.
